congresswoman michele bachmann has amassed quite a treasure chest for the re-election bid for the house seat there. as of july 25th, bachmann has raised and spent nearly $16 million according to the fcc report reports and that is more of any member of the house, and second to only john boehner, the speaker who has raised $18 million this election cycle. since her election to congress in 2006, the tea party star has been making an aggressive push for more tea party representation in the house. bachmann is now in a very close race with democrat jim graves, her first significant challenger since running for that seat back in 2006. joining me now to talk about it, in minneapolis, jennifer brooks of the "minnesota star tribune." jennif jennifer, good afternoon to you. >> hi. >> and congresswoman bachmann does not have trouble getting people to write cheshgs but there was an internal poll that notes that she has a pretty small lead that is well within the margin of error. why is bachmann facing such a strong challenge there in minnesota? >> well, certainly when the year began we never thought that
republican vice-presidential candidate paul ryan and michelle bachmann. then an analysis of the presidential campaign as it heads into the final two months. >> tomorrow on "washington journal" national journal correspondent looks at -- james kitfield looks at the muslim protests in the arab world. >> the latest information about the chicago teachers strike with stephen sawchuk. and syndicated editorial political cartoonist john cole and mark fiore. live at 7:00 a.m. >> i think people like to see where politicians' views have shifted over the years. i think people like to see whether mitt romney in 1994 was campaigning against welfare reform or abortion. they want to see what he was doing during the 2002 campaign, 2007. i think they would like to see how these politicians have evolved. there is an element to it that is almost a gotcha element. but there is also an element that is incredibly interesting. >> i tried to think why it is that he has changed so often. why he finds it so difficult to come down on one side of an issue and instead sort of floats between both issues. >> for the first t
committee. please welcome michelle bachmann. [applause] good to see you and thank you for coming. >> thank you. good to be here with you. [applause] >> mike: congresswoman, the white house is blaming all of this on a movie trailer for a movie that no one has seen and trying to say that all of this violence was stird up because people saw a film. your thoughts, and what we are dealing with is a film? >> it is the excuse but we know what is happening since 2005. the pen muslim countries in the world had a plan for 10 years and want to force all of the rest of the world to be in compliance with their religious law. it is called sharia law and want nonmuslims to follow their laws and what i want people to know. we are not the problem. the problem are the islamics that are demanding we follow their religious laws. this is not being mean to muslim. we are not being mean to muslim. in this country we believe in religious tolerance. if you are a catholic or jew or muslim and hin did the it is a different view this has serious conquences. our state department agreed with something and pushed with t
for president of the united states. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome michele bachmann. [applause] >> good to see you. thank you so much. god bless you. what a wonderful morning. good morning. thank you for that warm introduction. it is always an honor and a thrill to be back at the values voters summit. i want to say a word about this concept you have heard about because the war on women, the so-called war on women. it has about as much reliability and truthfulness as bill clinton's arithmetic. [applause] this week, as we have seen, there is a real war that is going on across the world. that is what i want to take my few moments that we have to data this morning -- i sit on the intelligence committee. we deal with the nation's classified secrets and this is a real issue. as we survey the political landscape today, it seems like it is deja vu all over again. we are seeing attacks on our embassy in a way we saw in the late 1970's. you would think jimmy carter was back in the white house again, would you? we are desperate for another ronald reagan. this time, i am sorry to say, it is even wo
billion from bill maher. he never called sarah palin, you, michele bachmann. >> this is such a grand theater to distract from the failures of obamacare. remember, this sandra fluke rhoads to fame in a few matter of months, somebody who have been primed as a tool for the feminist left. she came to fame in order to what? pedal free birth control. this she is a standard bearer of the democratic party. >> sean: the fact she is here and how the relationship got started and then think bill maher gives $1 million to obama and called sarah palin the c-word -- >> let's distract from the real war on conservative women and let's talk about the war on pro-life democratic women. they have no voice on this platform. there are 21 million democrats out there, sean, that identify themselves as pro-life. what do they think of this abortion palosa. >> sean: you are right. they are not talking about the economy. will this be the convention where on the floor of the democratic convention, delegates boo'd god and jerusalem being the capitol. >> it's a p.r. disaster. we have seen the true, unhinged face of
herself michele bachmann speaking to the council. the group will hear from the biggest name at this conference, republican presidential nominee paul ryan who is seen here yesterday on a brief return to his current job which is still on capitol hill. he's still got to be one of those voters on particular legislation. but today he's expected to really amp up those partisan attacks on president obama's foreign policy, especially with what's happening right now across the fwloeb and that brings me to my colleague wolf blitzer who is live with me in washington, d.c. i'm expecting he will echo what his running mate mitt romney has been doing refusing to back down on the harsh critic jims how obama and the administration is handling what's going on right now and particularly in a pointed interview with one of our colleagues in the media, george stephanopolous. >> this is what romney said. he's not apologizing at all for his initial or subsequent comments about how the obama administration handled the unrest both in cairo as well as in benghazi. listen to this. >> what i said was ex
was joined on that stage today by michele bachmann, rand paul, steve king, tony perkins, a celebration of right-wing views out of the mainstream. anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-gay. while paul ryan tried to under his views today, governor romney in the swing state of virginia, removing to restrict a woman's right to choose. the state up held regulations that could force many women's health clinics to shut their doors. these are the real values he stands for. just because he didn't say it doesn't mean he doesn't believe it. watch what they do, not just what they say. joining me now is frank schafer, columnist for "the huffington post" and author of crazy for god and washington correspondent for "the guardian." thanks for joining me. >> thank you. >> anna marie, let me start with you. paul ryan is hiding his views, it seems. you know, he didn't go into a lot of detail today but clearly being at this conference stating the views of his, let's say, the crowd of speakers that were with him, and what he's advocated before clearly is a very open confirmation of some of the most conservative
. for the republican primary candidates, there were some that were higher than others. michelle bachmann, i think, had the highest. >> we had a self-imposed michelle bachmann " at some point during the debates. -- michelle bachmann quota during the debates. >> but again, i do not know what it tells you. it does provide something interesting to look at. it does provide links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for all of the presidential candidates. >> george mason university. i think we have seen both candidates in a vulnerable position of being challenged on flip-flops' of position or permanence not kept. i have noticed so far that the tendency of both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, is to not attempt to say, well, the facts have changed. the facts are different. the fact that i look at now are not the fact that existed when that was my belief. instead, there are various levels of equivocation and bluff. one recently was when president obama was, i think, talking to a latino group who challenged him on his failure to keep the p
michele bachmann and jim dement, ryan fired up the crowd when he took aim at the health care law mandate requiring insurers provide free family planning coverage including birth control. >> this is into the threat and insult to one religious group. it is a threat and insult to every religious group. when mitt romney is elected, we will get to work on day one to reappeal that mandate and all of p obamacare. >> i'm joined now by deputy political editor who was at that summit earlier. good afternoon to you. paul ryan helped to fire up the base no doubt. how does that kind of rhetoric play to the 1 million or so undecided voters most of whom we know are not socially conservative? >> we know the health care mandate is not very popular even with independents. but most people have also indicated that they want to move on after the supreme court ruling. and i'm not sure how much weight this really carries considering that mitt romney also strongly supported a mandate as part of his health care reform plan in massachusetts. >> they certainly were not in com any's corner during the primaries. what
with as well as working with michelle bachmann at the values voters weekend, what he had to say about us. >> we will never have the media on our side. ever in this country. we will never have the elite, smart people on our side. because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. >> what does he mean by the elite smart people? i think i should plead guilty. >> you are very smart, there's no doubt about that andrea. >> i don't know about that. just joking. >> i was at the speech and it was a wonderful speech but the overall message he was giving to conservatives was about the importance of conservatism and conservatives to rally together and without religion and without church and without families, there is no strong conservative movement. he was really reinforcing the need for conservatives and members of faith to come together. i would like to address a point that bill made in terms of foreign policy. what's pathetic is the current administration's foreign policy. what we have the situation going on now in the middle east, is the result of weakness from the obama administra
things that michele bachmann and mitt romney can't seem to understand is the difference between the public and private approaches of this president. in public he's been relational and engaging, seeking dialogue with islamic nations, but in private he's been ruthless and aggressive launching relentless drone strikes and pursuing al qaeda with a zeal that borders on the obsessional. as john kerry said at the convention, ask osama bin laden if he's better off now than four years ago. but mitt romney is not only blind to the present, he also seems ignore rabbit of the past. islamic anger and unrest has plagued virtually every president since jimmy carter whether republican or democrat. 241 american servicemen were killed in 1983 when the marine barracks in beirut was bombed and ron 23458d rald reagan was president. al qaeda launched their first attacks on america during the clinton presidency. of course, the horrific attacks of 9/11 came under the presidency of george w. bush. but if you listen to mitt romney, everything that is wrong in the world can be blamed on the current presid
range. michele bachmann -- i do not know what it necessarily tells you, but it is sort of a fun thing to look at. it does provide you links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for the candidates. >> excuse me. >> good morning. david, george mason university. i think we have seen in the campaign so far that both candidates are in the position of being challenged. flip-plopped positions. i have noticed so far that both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, it is not to say, "well, the facts have changed at the facts are different. the facts i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief." instead, there are levels of equivocation or bluff. i think one latino group challenged him on keeping the promise of immigration reform that he intended to make. right then and there, i was hoping the president would say, "well, the picture is different. let's look get it imperatively." instead, it was something like, "i meant i would try." why do they just cannot say that the facts have changed when it challenge
congresswoman michele bachmann earlier. in a moment we'll open our phone lines to get your thoughts on what you've seen and heard. particularly congressman ryan's comments. he was heckled and shouted down several times. we want to get your thoughts about the summit in june. we are going to show you congressman ryan's remarks again after your phone calls. here are the numbers. (202) 585-3885 for democrats to republicans, your number to call, (202) 585-3886. and for independence it is (202) 585-3887. first call is david, calling from rochester on the republican's line. >> caller: good morning. the big issue is jobs. as chairman 490 mentioned yesterday there are five known people on extended unemployment insurance. i offer the suggestion that the federal unemployment insurance benefits be used in conjunction with a nine, $10 per hour job to create 3 million jobs. basically that would basically at no cost. that will put $600 million a week into the economy. would've been any comments from either mr. ryan or governor romney on this concept? family next, charles, west palm beach on the democrat line.
